Rashad Evans Wants Alexander Gustafsson, Glover Teixeira Next
Former UFC light heavyweight champion Rashad Evans made a statement Saturday night at UFC 167, dominating Chael Sonnen and inching his way closer to another shot at the belt.
Now, following his second straight win, Evans (19-3-1) has his sights set on a bigger target.
“I want Alexander Gustafsson, even Glover Teixeira,” said Evans, during the post-fight show. “I’d love to fight some of the best guys in the division.”
Gustafsson is coming off a narrow decision loss to UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones, while Teixeira is scheduled to meet “Bones” sometime in early 2014.
Evans was unable to solve his former training partner back in 2012 when the two met for the title. He did push Jones to a decision, though, in the process.
